Abstract/Summary

It has been suggested that negative effects of climate change on forest health could be mitigated by planting trees of non-local provenance that are adapted to predicted future climates. We investigate the importance of tree provenance for associated organisms using a model system of gall-forming herbivores (Hymenoptera: Cynipidae) on Sessile oak (Quercus petraea), at an experimental plantation in northwest France.
